The Bolingbroke - Dog Friendly Pub in Clapham, LondonFrom the welcoming bar through to the relaxed dining room, elegance reigns supreme and the emphasis is on high quality British food and traditional pub values.
The Bolingbroke Pub & Dining Room is named in honour of Henry St. John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke, the brilliant politician and reckless rake, who spent the early and final years of his life in Battersea. Whilst Henry was renowned for his hard drinking, innumerable affairs and wild escapades, this Northcote Road public house is a rather more refined local.
We are fortunate to have our own farm in Hampshire providing us with wonderful free-range chicken, pork and lamb. Our fish is sustainably sourced from English day boats on the south coast and we age our steaks in house. We have a good range of cask ales and lagers and are proud of our wine list which offers great wines at very reasonable prices.
ThePop in for a drink and enjoy a strong but succinct selection of new and old world wines including the renowned English Chapel Down as well as an extensive choice of champagnes.
There’s also a mix of classic and contemporary cocktails and changing guest ales including Timothy Taylor.
If you’re feeling peckish, the bar has its own menu of light bites. Choose from mini Cumberland sausages with honey mustard, Welsh rarebit or Ploughman’s, all of which can be enjoyed in the traditional pub setting complete with floor to ceiling windows and stylish al fresco seating - ideal in the summer months.

- SW Magazine
“"Grown-up pub operation, with generous pricing, a handsome bar area and a traditional-looking dining room serving the likes of lamb stew and apple and rhubarb crumble. Try for a spot by the fire."”
- The Times
“"Smart, local popular pub whose more diminutive size adds charm. Glass-roofed dining room sees flavoursome dishes with a mostly British accent; more choice at dinner. Child Friendly "”
